Newcastle to Forster Birds

Newcastle to Great Lakes.

I could not work out what this next bird was. I have no experience in identifying pelagic birds, plus these birds were a fair way away so I could not get a good look at them close up. Could be Black Petrel or Sooty Shearwater at a very rough guess. Wedge-tailed Shearwater. Thanks to Nicholas Haas for the id. (early 2018).

The Kookaburras stole one of my sandwiches again at the lake at Pacific Palms again! I had my eye on two of them up on a branch then a third one snuck behind me and grabbed my Nutella and jam sandwich right out of my hand.

The crows came along later and cleaned up the leftovers.
